Quake 5 = Quake Champions
Credit to the people who posted about this, it definitely deserves it's own thread......

Quake Champions trailer:

The game will feature a "diverse character of warriors" with unique attributes and skills.

Well, fuck. We Overwatch now, boys.
Also will be outsourced to Saber Interactive.

I know, it's impossible appeal at same time for Q1 fans, strogg fans (Q2/Q4) and mp players (Q3/QLive) but this is just something completely out of this world.

Yes. It's Annie Ranger,

… and Ranger Ranger.

The kids are Junior Ranger and a tarbaby. 
The tarbaby seems adopted, but let's not mention that. Would hurt its feelings. 
Ranger is suspiciously close to Reznor, and Reznor's wife gets pregnant every time he so much as sneezes. Deepest lore???!? 
Balls-deepest Lore, More Like 
Oh boy, I knew the Strogg fella was gonna be annoying from the released voice files way back, but that's just awful. They were supposed to go for the waifu audience with Athena and/or Hunter, not the Borderlands audience with this
Lol. I don't even have the energy to pretend I give a monkey's about how awful this game looks. 
Please Just Close This Thread. 
It's just a wacky teaser trailer. Y'all are way too salty. 
I'm Having Fun With It 
Someone else from here once said that this shouldn't have been called Quake Champions but id Champions instead and I couldn't agree more. Just like everyone else, I'm bummed that we aren't getting a true sequel to Quake 1 (and we probably never will) but after interacting with the community outside of Quake 1, it seems that for many, multiplayer represents the true legacy of this franchise.

The game is fun albeit really frustrating after reaching a certain level of experience. I think that it's way more accessible than Quake Live, which I couldn't enjoy because I would get absolutely demolished every single time that I played.

The game has many glaring issues, a few of which stem from a fundamental level, but the bottom line is that it's really fun. I'm guessing that there would have been less backlash against it if Quake wasn't in the title but then people would be complaining that it should have been called Quake given the game play and weapon selection. I ended up buying the full version after having a ton of fun with it and I sincerely hope that it helps to send a message that people are still interested in Quake. Whatever your opinion on Doom 4, it pretty much caused an FPS revival (especially a renewed interest in retro style shooters) so the time is ripe for a new single player Quake game - possibly even a proper sequel to Quake 1. 
Just Tried It Out... And Was Pleasantly Surprised 
Thanks to Spy sharing the link to the QC trailer in general abuse, I actually downloaded the game and tried out a couple of matches. I was very pleasantly surprised, considering the only shooter I've ever really played online up until this point is Counter-Strike Source, and that was like 10 years ago. @~@

Quite a clever idea from Bethesda: You can download the game for free until June 17th, and if you've played at least one match, you can keep the game even after the 17th. That strategy forced me to actually play the game, which was quite a hurdle for me to overcome, because I was afraid I'd be good for nothing but being red paint. But based on the couple of matches I played, seems the matchmaking system worked well enough to make me feel like an MLG 360 no-scope pro! xD

But what I'm trying to say here is that if you guys haven't tried out the game yet, then I'd recommend you to do so, while you have the chance to get the game for free. 
Might Have Got It Wrong... 
I think you could keep the game even without playing a match, as long as you just logged in. Well, good thing I was in the misconception that you had to play at least one game, so that encouraged me enough to try it! xD 
Quake Champ What? 
Have played this game now in the free week.
Same Engine like H&G and PuG, PfP system and a Leveldesign that's offending to a primate too.
News! If you download this game now from steam, you have to agree three different bills and instaslling the new bethesda plattform too. 
Trying To Think Of A Price... 
...that they'd have to pay me to even trying one cocking match of that shite. It's not a small amount. Slightly larger than the amount I'd happily pay to get all trace of Quake Chumpions erased from existence. 
Shambler isn't okay with people liking things he doesn't like, but at least his unrelenting hate of everything Q:C related is somewhat more sensible to read than
Same Engine like H&G and PuG, PfP system and a Leveldesign that's offending to a primate too.
Or you have to agree three different bills and instaslling the new bethesda plattform too. which is blatantly wrong as there's no ToS agreement playing it through Steam other than the usual first-run checkbox and the primary reason to play through Steam is so you don't have to use the awful fucking Bethesda launcher. 
Ok? So the agreements have no influence on the game? Hear this the first time.
The funny thing is that I bought it on steam and had three agreements poping up and the Bethesda launcher automaticly installed. Maybe this si new since E3 or missed something.
Will test what you wrote on the next bethesda game I buy. :) 
I'm not sure why it installed the Beth launcher, it's possible something bugged somewhere; I got a key for Steam a couple months ago after playing on the Bethesda launcher for a year and it didn't give any extra warnings or dialogues or anything on Steam, it just let me install it, had me enter my Beth account details ingame, and that was that. Uninstalled the Bethesda launcher directly afterwards and have had zero issues, so try uninstalling it anyway, it's just bloatware you don't need at this point and is unbelievably shitty in and of itself. 
Thanks for the info!
I will do so. 
the scrags in blood covenant are the best thing of the game

somehow i'm winning matches

i'm playing against bots or something is off 
If it's your first couple matches, then yes, it's against bots (mostly). Look at the scoreboard and see if they have 0 ping. They did that so complete newbies at least get a game or two of feeling good before they get facerolled by vets. 
50 - 5 scoreboard in team dm... yeah...

0 ping it is

i get what they're doing, but it's too easy 
ok, a real match after, i dunno 5 or 6 matches against bots


i ended second, 34 frags. 35 frags the winner

not bad. but i played very little q3a or any other arena shooter so i don't know. i know that i like it more than team fortress 2, overwatch or pubg 
In the light of Willits leaving id: how much of this game was his bid for relevancy after Doom 4 proved they don't need him to make a hit?

And how well did that go?? 
deleted it 10 minutes in. bad 
Correct Well Done.
